“Well?” she asked.
“Well? Nice secret the two of you cooked up. Since when did you, of all people, become a Mathew ally?”
“I haven’t become a Mathew ally. He can be very persistent when he wants something.”
“Really?” I said sarcastically. “Explain?”
“He wanted to know if you were coming, when, where, all the details. I resisted at first knowing how last summer ended. In fact I was rude to him. I told him what an asshole he was. He asked if you were seeing anyone. I told him I thought you were.”
“Gayle,” I said.
“Couldn’t help myself, I wanted to hurt him, if that’s even possible. He said he really wanted to see you. He felt bad about last summer. I told him I didn’t think that would be happening.”
